intervention into education and focus on letting the states, the counties, the cities, the local school sites handle the education issues. what we're doing with federal intervention is not working. >> what's your thought? >> well, you know, certainly some of the things the federal government has done over the years haven't been all that successful. and the white house and many democrats in congress are trying to bring about a new approach. and part of what the president talked about in the state of the union is anew approach. but there are some things the federal government is better off doing than others. one of the things, frankly, i think would be a great role for the federal government in education is to help provide some of the resources for infrastructure, for building new schools. it doesn't get the federal government involved in curriculum, but rather in helping with deferred maintenance and helping to build these facilities. that doesn't interfere with that state federal role. but there is an important obligation here to try to help, particularly in those states that are really strug

story, as i've been saying. tell me about the mood out there in the city. your readership, and why this has been such a grabber, even as it developed in the beginning with this fellow with a grievance against the lapd. he claimed it was a racist situation. that hasn't been backed up by anyone that involved him going on this murder rampage of killing four people now allegedly. and perhaps going to kill more. tell me about the readership you've got whom. you talking to out there? people seem to be rapt in their attention. >> very much so. the lapd holds a pretty -- people are fascinated with the lapd to begin with. there is a sort of base level of interest that runs in the city for the lapd. it is a storied institution. it has a very infamous and famous past. so you start out from that, and you add on to a story like you outlined that really hollywood couldn't make up if they tried. it has all the elements of a movie that we probably will see some day in the theaters when screenwriters get ahold of it. but it has been a story that the city has gripped on to. our readership quite lite

speaking, the largest city close to us was 300 miles away, that being san antonio. on the mexican side, it's monterrey, mexico, 2 1/2 hours away. we grew up as an independent culture, the border culture. so both the mexican side and the american side, we've always thought of ourselves as one community. we don't think of ourselves as two different nations, like the nation thinks today. after 9/11, that changed. prior to 9/11, we went over there for lunch. we went over there for socializing. people come over. in fact, my home community of mcallen, texas, the business community can increase twofold because much of monterrey comes over to go shopping. that changed because the border got hardened, not only from law enforcement perspective, but the cartels came in. if you want to cross the border illegally, you literally have to go through the cartels in order to get across. so life has changed. many of the wealthy and upper middle class have moved to texas. they no longer feel safe in mexico. >> interesting. >> so there's a brain drain that's occurring. we, in turn, are prospering. their money
